FIVE REASONS WHY SuniTAFE IS AUSTRALIA’S BEST LARGE TRAINING PROVIDER

To be awarded Australia’s No.1 Training Provider for 2019, SuniTAFE have done a lot of things right. Here’s the 5 most important reasons why we believe SuniTAFE is regarded as the country’s best.
 

1. GREAT STUDENT EXPERIENCE

SuniTAFE’s success is a reflection of the success enjoyed by our students.
Results speak for themselves. As the No.1 ranked institution for employment outcomes, with 88.9% of graduates finding work in their area of training or enrolling in further education, SuniTAFE students are highly likely to realise their chosen careers.

While SuniTAFE’s apprentice completion rate is also significantly above average at 95%.
Through the Skills and Jobs Centre and Client Engagement Officers, both enrolled and prospective new students are consulted directly in designing course plans to suit each student’s needs. Good news definitely travels. SuniTAFE has become renowned as a very positive and enriching student experience.

Perhaps it’s the dedication and expertise of our staff, the small class sizes and state-of-the-art facilities, vibrant campus culture, the incredible beauty of the Murray River landscape, or the region’s healthy and affordable lifestyle. The student satisfaction rate at SuniTAFE is among the highest anywhere in the country, and SuniTAFE is experiencing a significant increase in new commencements as word gets out.

2. PARTNERSHIPS FOR GROWTH

Our partnerships and collaborations are very much the foundation of SuniTAFE’s operations, enabling us to understand the region’s current and projected skill demands. SuniTAFE actively pursues and maintains partnerships with government, industry, local businesses and community groups that bring a host of benefits to both industry and students.

Industry partnerships are pivotal in deciding course content, ensuring students receive the most up-to-date and relevant training to set them squarely on a qualified career path. It is also equally important for businesses, enabling them to plan ahead with the confidence that they have both the know-how and workforce to realise their goals. We have partnerships in all key industry sectors - Horticulture, Transport and Logistics, Health Services, Business and Technology, Hospitality, Automotive and Engineering, and Construction and Trades.

 

3. OUR PROFESSIONAL STAFF

We pride ourselves on being an employer of choice. The wellbeing and capability of our staff is paramount in SuniTAFE’s ability to provide quality education, and a positive culture that filters throughout the campuses and classrooms.

This has been achieved by building an environment of trust, mutual respect and a focus on positive outcomes. Teaching staff are encouraged to have a substantial voice in shaping how SuniTAFE can best serve the community.

SuniTAFE staff tick all the boxes. They are current with the most up-to-date technical know-how in their field, have undergone the latest Training and Assessment upgrades, while Cultural Awareness Training was undertaken by all staff in 2019. SuniTAFE have also expanded its vehicle fleet to meet a growing demand for its new on-site teaching model.

To remain relevant to constantly evolving industries, SuniTAFE knows it must be innovative and welcome change. Our 2019-2023 Strategic Plan focuses on the future as well as on the present delivery of Australian best quality training.
